mortise and tenon

    I'm making an octogon frame for an antique mirror, so it is heavy. I'm considering just using splines but like challenging joints and would like to try something new. What would you use?

    Hi, new poster and beginner woodworker looking for advice! I have a wood library/court chair where the back legs have snapped inside in the joint. From what I've read online I believe it the tenon has snapped inside the joint?? I've attached pictures of the snapped tenon stuck inside the...

    Not that M&T joints are bad (I love them), they're just very time consuming even with a jig. For attaching a breadboard end to a table top for a typical 4 legged table with aprons I was thinking of an alternative and wanted to get everyone's opinion. What if I just attached the breadboard with...

    Has anyone ever used this Beadlock joinery kit? http://www.rockler.com/beadlock-pro-joinery-kit It looks pretty legit and on amazon has some pretty good reviews. I'm wondering if this would be a good tool to use to do loose tenons for breadboard ends on table tops? I could glue the center...

    So I'm new to making mortise and tenon joints and recently attempted my first one. I'm doing these for breadboard ends on table tops with 1 1/2" thick doug fir. I used my fixed base router with a 3/4" x 1/2" deep straight cut bit for the tenon and a 1/2" x 2 1/2" straight cut bit for the...

    I'm making a table top out of 2x8 kiln dried doug fir. I used biscuits and edge glued the top itself, but for the breadboards I was trying to figure out the best/easiest way to attach them, which are also 2x8's. I know mortise and tenon is probably the best and I do have a router to cut them...

    It's fairly common to use mortise and tenon joints to join the legs of a workbench to its feet and arms (top bearers). I see a number of people putting in drawbore pins to secure these vertical joints. Now don't get me wrong - a drawbore joint is incredibly strong, and doesn't need glue, and if...

    I am just thinking about starting to work with slabs and logs for furniture as a hobby. I have found lots of information on slab drying but none on log and branch drying. How do you recommend drying small logs and branches to use in mortise and tenon furniture? They would obviously be stacked...

    I was curious to know if anyone is using the Ez Pro Mortise And Tenon Jig by General Tools. I was contemplating getting it but wanted to know what you folks thought of it. I'm a novice woodworker and thought this might be easier than some of the alternatives. Here's a link to the product...

    I'm very much a beginner, with pretty minimal tools (handheld circular saw, handheld drill, handheld sander). I've finally got a garage space to work in (yay) but I'm still running very lean. I'm trying to figure out how to build knockdown furniture with this minimal tool set. In addition...
